Críticas:

"A triumph of scholarship and production. . . . Essential." --Choice "We know that Sicily was especially wealthy during the Classical and early Hellenistic periods, as demonstrated by literary references and by the extant art, but written sources are fragmentary. Perhaps for that reason, it is often overlooked in studies of Greek art and history. . . . The various authors do an admirable job of bringing Sicily to life and making their ideas available to the English-language reader."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review "With its numerous lavish color illustrations and informative, easy-to-read text, this book is quite enticing. Recommended for art history buffs, students, scholars, and armchair travelers with an interest in Greek and Roman history."--Library Journal "General narrative and analysis are profitably juxtaposed with specialized treatments of selected material, including some of the exhibition's most dazzling items." --Times Literary Supplement A triumph of scholarship and production. . . .

Reseña del editor:

This is a richly illustrated volume that demonstrates Sicily's essential role in the development of the ancient Mediterranean world. Ancient Sicily, a prosperous island at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, occupied a pivotal place in the region. In the late 8th Century B.C., emigres from the Greek mainland founded colonies along the shores of the region now known as Sicily. Over time, the area grew wealthy from its agricultural abundance, and colonial settlements emerged as formidable metropolises. Sicily is the only English-language book that focuses on the watershed period between 480 B.C. and the Roman conquest of Syracuse in 212 B.C. - a time of great social and political ferment. Essays investigate Sicily not simply as a destination for adventurers and settlers, but as a catalyst that shaped Greek culture at its peak and transmitted Hellenism to Rome. In the opulent courts of the Sicilian city-states, artists, poets, and scientist attained levels of ingenuity rivaling those of "old Greece." Innovation in architecture, engineering, philosophy and literature flourished in mixed cultural communities.

Descripción J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, 2013. Hardcover. Condición: New. 288 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. EXHIBITION CATALOGS. Ancient Sicily, a prosperous island at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, occupied a pivotal place between Greece, North Africa, and the Italian peninsula. In the late eighth century B.C., migrs from the Greek mainland founded colonies along the shores of the region they knew as Sikelia, bringing with them the dialects, customs, and religious practices of their homelands. Dearest of all lands to Demeter, goddess of the harvest, Sicily grew wealthy from its agricultural abundance, and colonial settlements emerged as formidable metropolises. Sicily: Art and Invention between Greece and Rome is the only English-language book that focuses on the watershed period between the victory over the Carthaginians at the Battle of Himera in 480 B.C. and the Roman conquest of Syracuse in 212 B.C., a time of great social and political ferment. Intended as a sourcebook for Classical and Hellenistic Sicily, this anthology features current research by more than forty international scholars. The essays investigate Sicily not simply as a destination for adventurers and settlers, but as a catalyst that shaped Greek culture at its peak and transmitted Hellenism to Rome. In the opulent courts of the Sicilian city-states, artists, poets, and scientists attained levels of refinement and ingenuity rivaling, even surpassing, those of "old Greece." Innovation in architecture, engineering, coinage, philosophy, and literature flourished in mixed cultural communities, which offered room for experimentation and gave birth to such influential figures as Empedokles, Theokritos, and Archimedes. This volume accompanied the exhibition Sicily: Art and Invention between Greece and Rome, presented at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa (April 3ÑAugust 19, 2013), the Cleveland Museum of Art (September 30, 2013ÑJanuary 5, 2014), and the Palazzo Ajutamicristo in Palermo (February 14ÑJune 15, 2014). 288 pages, 9 1/2 x 11 inches144 color, 23 black-and-white illustrations, 1 map, hardcover. Claire L. Lyons is head of the Department of Antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum and a specialist in the archaeology of Greece and pre-Roman Italy. Michael Bennett is the Cleveland Museum of Art's first curator of Greek and Roman Art and has overseen the reinstallation of the museum's collections of Ancient Near Eastern, Greek, Etruscan, and Roman antiquities. Clemente Marconi is James R. McCredie Professor in the History of Greek Art and Archaeology at New York University's Institute of Fine Arts. His area of specialty is archaeology of ancient Sicily. "General narrative and analysis are profitably juxtaposed with specialized treatments of selected material, including some of the exhibition's most dazzling items."
